The Importance of ECG Training Courses

Used across all healthcare settings, an ECG (electrocardiogram) is a vital monitoring tool that can help to detect serious illnesses and potentially save lives.

An ECG can detect heart rate or heart rhythm, and is used to help medical professionals determine if a patient is having a heart attack, or has experienced a heart attack in the past.

What is ECG Training?

In order to understand heart rate and heart rhythm, it’s important for nurses and allied healthcare practitioners to undergo the right training.

A basic ECG training course is aimed at novice practitioners or those qualified practitioners who wish to refresh their knowledge. A basic ECG course will educate delegates in the following areas:

  • The understanding of normal anatomy and physiology of the heart
  • Key principles of ECG monitoring and what is required
  • How to undertake a 12-lead ECG recording
  • The basics of recognising normal vs. abnormal ECG readings
  • And much more!

ECG Training at CIPHER

We offer two different courses for nurses and medical professionals looking to gain the necessary skills and knowledge for recording ECGs in various healthcare settings.

Both held at our Specialist Training Centre located in Stockton on Tees.

Advanced ECG Interpretation Training Course

This is a 1-day Advanced ECG course designed to give you the ability to confidently identify subtle ECG changes and recognise more acute coronary syndromes, imbalances and conditions.

ECG Training Applications

There are so many ways an ECG can provide clarity for medical practitioners. In addition to detecting heart attacks and looking for chest pain, ECG readings play a part in diagnostics for anything potentially heart-related, such as shortness of breath, severe fatigue, dizziness or fainting.

Completing an ECG Training Course will help to develop your skills and specialise your knowledge in identifying the telltale signs of a wide range of health complications, including:

  • Brugada Syndrome
  • Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome
  • Benign Early Repolarisation or ‘High Take-Off Syndrome’
  • Long QT Syndrome
  • Electrolyte Imbalances, including Hyperkalemia
